Sea levels are rising faster

According to a recent study led by the University of Tasmania's Australia's national science agency CISRO the sea levels are rising really fast. The pace of the rise of the levels is 1.6 to 2.9 mm per year. Experts have been trying to reach and analyse the effects of global warming for the last twenty years.

The results can be found in the journal Nature Climate Change. These reveal tide gauge and GPS measurements of the land collected for over 10 years.

In 2014, the researchers drew the line to conclude that the increasing rate of sea volumes is fast and a cause of concern.

In order to have a larger perspective on the issue, researchers have made projections for the next 80 years. The future is not so promising. The sea level may rise to 99cm in the envisioned period of time.

A surprisingly rapid retreat of some of the Earth?s great ice masses, from Greenland to West Antarctica has been documented by the scientists over the past 15 years.

The rising of sea levels cannot be avoided. However, the projections could be made more optimistic with proper care and protection of the environment.

Calamities owing to Global warming can be seen all over the world.The nature will take its course in making room for survival if the pollution and the exaggerated constructions in the natural environments do not slow down.
